Samuel Alito on Families & Children
Supreme Court Justice (nominated by Pres. George W. Bush 2005)
Alito rules that plaintiff?s continued criminal detention was warranted, even after seven years, based upon his ongoing failure to pay a $2.5 million divorce judgment. Since he was jailed for civil contempt, Alito held, and ?state courts have repeatedly found that Mr. Chadwick has the present ability to? pay the judgment, I believe very strongly in limited government, federalism, free enterprise, the supremacy of the elected branches of government, the need for a strong defense and effective law enforcement, and the legitimacy of a government role in protecting traditional values.
A California law imposed $1000 civil fines on persons who sold or rented to minors "violent video games." The video game industry sued to prevent enforcement of the law.
